    Trying to keep within the OP's parameters I would use any online antivirus scan while using a "live Linux CD" on an x86 box. :D

    For the guy who said he would use "just that machine" - well, maybe if you weren't the vendor of that machine, we'd believe you!

    The software encoded in my brain. The only virus it ever gets is Win32:JackDaniels. I clean it out of my system and the next afternoon I'm rebooted and ready to roll.

    If you let me use the fw hardware, as only software application I would choose a good HIPS.

    If I ever decided to use any security application it would have to be Windows ME. Surely nobody would be mad enough to write malware to attack such a badly written program.

    LOL! Yes they would. :p

    On my XP, I've been very satisfied with Avast. I've "tested it" online (if you get my drift), and it has caught everything thrown at it, so far.

    In the real world, I also run Spybot (not running it, just keeping it immunized), and KeyScrambler

    A-Squared anti-malware, Auslogics defrag, Winsockxfix, CCleaner, Eusing free registry cleaner, and free registry defrag to keep things smooth.
